Last year in August Black Pearl Film was producing a TV commercial for Beiersdorf. I was shooting the stills for this production. The goal was to shoot alongside the film camera to achieve a similar look between the TVC and the photos. We were shooting one day close to Munich in the mountains and three more days at various locations in Hamburg. It was a lot of fun to be a part of this.

Here are some of my personal favourites from this job…
Here is the Directors Cut of the TVC.
In November last year I was visiting San Francisco for two weeks. The following images were photographed with a Hasselblad 500cm and an 80mm lens. I am finally finished with scanning and editing the negatives…
I had a wonderful time in California. Thank you to all the great people I’ve met along the way!
In July I shot my first commercial job for Nivea in Portugal. During a break on one of the production days I took some quick portraits of our male model Maximilian. The morning light was just perfect, so my job was quite easy.
Besides being a great model, Max is also a very talented painter. Check out his Website if you like.
These are the only images I can share so far. The work I shot for Nivea will come out next summer, so stay tuned…
